Hiya friends! Announcing a small scheduling switcheroo – this summer I’m committed to spending the weekend (mostly) offline so I’m moving ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ to every other Friday, rotating it with ‘Weekend Reading’ on opposite weeks, leaving you with a roundup of inspiration on Fridays. Enjoy these amazing spaces and projects in the continuing series highlighting the best we spy in DIY and design!
